Just wondering two things:
1) Do you suspect that they will cast a more genuine batch of guys, given that it’s Emily?
2) What is your favorite….drink? 🙂 (I figure that you get a lot of Bachelor/ette/Pad related questions and that I’d give you a break, particularly from the ones about the watered down ground, how the roses are pinned on, if it’s REALLY Courtney and all that jazz).
Comment: 1) I think the fact that they decided on Emily so early on and they will probably announce it shortly, is to drum up interest. Knowing that there’s still 2 months until filming starts, now that pretty much everyone knows it’s Emily, you can actually get more people coming forward who might want to apply. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll still have your fair share of drama guys, model/actors, fillers, etc. But there’s gotta be a reason why they decided on her so early on. They’ve never locked the lead in this early before filming started and had it get out. So it definitely seems like they will cast guys who specifically want to be there because it is her. Doesn’t mean it’ll necessarily work, but they’ll sure try.
2) Coors Light. Like Nicki…ha ha. Like, drink drink? Vodka cranberry or vodka soda.
Hello Steve, I was reading your blog today and saw that Kasey B. got eliminated. I’m a single guy, 29, I’m in IL. I’m a fan of The Bachelor. I really liked Kasey’s personality and the way her date went with Ben. I’d like to go on a date with Kasey. I was wondering if you have a way to contact her to ask her for me or if I can get in touch with her somehow. I went on a date with Emily Maynard last month, and I don’t think it worked out between us, but I’m not totally sure.
Comment: Ummmmm, ok. Sure buddy. I’ll get right on that. I got Kacie on speed dial so why don’t I give her a call real quick and see if she wants to go out with single guy, 29, from IL who allegedly just went out with Emily last month but doesn’t know if it worked out between them.
Here’s a hint: It didn’t.
You know what’s starting to become a frequently asked question in the Reader Emails? This one:
Just wondering why you don’t set up a frequently asked question page. Just started reading your section last year, love reading your stuff, just not enough to go through archives of past seasons.
Comment: I’ve definitely answered this one before, but here we go again. Why isn’t there a FAQ page? Because it won’t do me any good. If someone has a question for me, they’re gonna ask it. They’re not gonna think to themselves first, “Hmmmm, I got a question for Steve, but let me see if it’s already been asked in the FAQ page.” Just like you don’t want to go through archives to find if your question was already asked, why would anyone want to go through pages and pages of a FAQ link?
Not to mention, what’s considered a FAQ? Something that’s been asked twice? Ten times? 20 times? My FAQ link would be 20 pages long considering all the repetitive questions I’ve been asked. So I don’t see the point. If you email it to me and I’m in a mood to answer it that day, I will. If I’m in a mood to delete it, I will. If I’m in a mood to save it until the “Reader Email” column and make fun of it then, I will. So yeah, I guess it all depends on my mood.
Love you column every week! My question is in regards to the necklace he gave Brittney with the date card last night. I am assuming the producers took back that necklace when she left. Why didn’t Linzi get a necklace when her date card arrived as well? Thanks!
Comment: He did. He gave her a pearl necklace later on that night (Sorry, that was just too easy).
